Course SCA Barista Skills Intermediate
|Are you already working in coffee and do you want to further refine your skills? Or are you an enthusiast with a thorough basic knowledge of coffee who wants to gain more knowledge? The SCA Barista Skills Intermediate training from ITC Academy brings you a higher level! A nice plus, this training is SVH-accredited.
You will get started with the machines in this Intermediate training. We refresh your techniques, teach you all the fancy Barista moves and show you the latest gadgets in your field. But we also take the time to go through the theory with you. We will discuss the influence of origin, processing method and variety of the coffee bean. You will learn to recognize – by tasting – the effect of dosing and time. We experience why milk foams and why sometimes it won’t. You will work on the different coffees from the Barista menu and take the first steps to the financial aspects of a coffee bar.
After you have passed your exam, you can request your SCA certificate.
|One day (7 hours). We start at 10 am, we finish at 5 pm.|
|For those who have not taken any prior courses, we recommend to first complete the SCA Barista Skills Foundation training. It is not compulsory to have taken the Foundation training, however, participants for this intermediate program are expected to have a grasp of the knowledge and skill-set that is taught in the Foundation training.|

|It is essential to be able to practice at home/work. If you do not have an espresso machine to work with at home or at work, try to find a bar or restaurant in your neighborhood to practice. ITC Academy offers planned evenings to practice at our training center for those who have no espresso machine at their disposal.|
|Coffee roasters, buyers, vendors, employees working with coffee, private individuals who would like to learn barista skills.
This training has been developed to teach the more intermediate skills and knowledge that are expected from a competent barista.
|The SCA Barista Skills Foundation exam is held on a later date. This date will be determined, depending on the time you need to practice. The exam lasts about 1.5 hours and consists of a theory and a practical part. Are you ready for the exam? Please contact us to schedule your exam. We have scheduled regular examination evenings in both Zeewolde and The Hague every month.|
